The "Construction and Engineering" business area includes ongoing renovation and modernisation of the building stock as well as the task of keeping the building's technical installations functional and ready for use all year round. In recent years, the facilities in all residential areas and the day-care centre have been systematically renewed, supplemented and constantly upgraded to the latest state of the art.
Project student housing complex Effertsufer 74
At the beginning of 2020, the Studierendenwerk bought a former warehouse and workshop building on the Effertsufer. The three-storey solid building with a full basement is to be converted into around 100 flats. Initial plans envisage a mix of different flats, doubles and shared flats for a total of around 98 residents in the existing building. On the spacious plot of land, a new extension for an additional 54 dormitory places could be built on the left-hand side, thus creating living space for a total of 152 students. Completion and occupation by students is planned for the 2023 summer semester.
